The Bigleaf Maple

Did you know bigleaf maples (Acer macrophyllum) are the largest and most common maple trees on Vancouver Island?
This “big daddy” of the Pacific Northwest boasts a height of 40 to 80 feet tall, a canopy that extends as far as 50 feet and sap with a sugar concentration fit for syrup production.






Making Syrup
ˌ
Facts

Sap is about 98% water. Boiling sap causes the water to evaporate which
reduces the sap to syrup. At 2% sugar it will take about 43 litres of
sap to make one litre of syrup.
